Local notes

This is an entertaining and fascinating Jungian interpretation of a mysterious Renaissance fantasy, the "Hyperotomachia Poliphilii", by Jungian analyst Linda Fierz-David.
The Hyperotomachia is the lengthy and rather bizarre dream-narrative of 'Polipholio's search for union with his beloved, the maiden Polia. Similar to the late medieval narrative "The Romance of the Rose" (but far longer) the Hypnerotomachia is understood to be a mystical allegory and has been interpreted and reinterpreted since its 16th century publication.
